If you have a custom domain linked to your Squarespace site, you can also add a custom email address. For example, if your domain is www.sampledomain.com, you can use a custom email address that matches your domain, like email@example.com.
There are a couple ways to add email to Squarespace:
- If you don’t already have a custom email address, use our integration with Google Workspace (formerly called G Suite) to set up a new account.
- If you already have a custom email address, you can keep using it with Squarespace.
Use Google Workspace
If you don't already have a custom email address for your domain, you can create a new one through our partnership with Google Workspace. When you sign up for Google Workspace through Squarespace, you’ll manage your email account billing through Squarespace, but use Google's interface to access your emails, calendars, and documents.
Get started with our Google Workspace and Squarespace overview.
Use an email address you already have
If you already have a custom email address, you can use it with your Squarespace site.
If your email is linked to a third-party domain, connecting your domain to Squarespace won’t affect the way your email is hosted. If your email is linked to a Squarespace Domain, you can continue using your third-party email service by changing your domain’s MX records.
Note: If you’re transferring a domain to Squarespace, you can move your MX records to Squarespace along with your domain, but we suggest contacting your email provider before getting started. For more information, visit Transferring a domain to Squarespace.
Is my email hosted by Squarespace?
No. Your email is always hosted externally, even though your site is hosted by Squarespace. If your domain is hosted by Squarespace, your email account is still separate. When you use our integration with Google Workspace, you'll manage your Google Workspace billing through Squarespace, but Google hosts the email address.
Here’s how those three elements can work with your site:
- Site: Always hosted by Squarespace
- Custom domain: Hosted by Squarespace or a third party domain provider
- Email: Always hosted by a third party (either Google Workspace or another provider)
